*Net cash on hand is reported cash on hand with non-candidate, nonforgiveable debt subtracted.

**24-hour reports are delayed when they fall on a Saturday, Sunday or holiday to the next business day, unless received the weekend before the election.

You know folks, you're allowed to not report over the weekend (until the final weekend). Some of us would appreciate a couple of days off. We received not-required 41 pages from Elder yesterday, who managed to miss the reporting deadline by a day last week.

I get it, unlike usual a-list candidates raising big dough who have law firms doing their compliance and reporting work, Elder has a La Mesa councilmember as his treasurer. It's cute, but not really good for a multi-million campaign. There's a reason we hire law firms with compliance departments to handle this and there are several on all sides of the aisles.
